Homelite string gas trimmer Model ut20811A: 1. Will start with full choke and run with full choke for a while but will not maintain speed when choke is released. 2. String feed will not feed when taped. String gets wrapped under adjacent loop on spool. Have tried to wrap new string tightly on spool to no avail.

If it only runs with choke on, then mixture is too lean or idle set to low.
Adjust mixture initially at 1.5 turns, then move in or out as needed for highest idle when warm.
Make sure no leaks or clogged filter when adjusting.

Hard to say with string feed, but are you sure you are not putting the spool in backwards?

Homelite very hard starting prime 10X full choke model UT32651


Make sure your fuel mix is fresh and of the right gas-oil ratio. Today's pump gas has Ethanol mixed with the gas and can go bad in as little as 30 days. this stuff is terrible to run in small 2 cycle engines. A lot of loggers I know buy Ethanol free gas for their saws. Also do not ever use starting fluid to start a 2 cycle engine ! What happens is the Either washes the cylinder wall of oil and now you have a scored piston and/or cylinder

My homelite string trimmmer will not run when choke is run position. it will run, but not at full throtle, when choke is set between full choke and half-choke.


you've got a fuel system issue , most likely carb problem, if this a newer trimmer it will likely need the carburetor replaced or adjusted, also check for cracking fuel lines or signs of old fuel varnish in the tank

Trimmer will only run in choke position


You have a few possibilities. Make sure you have good fresh gas in the tank. You're not getting enough gas, so choking helps get more gas than air, making it run better. Could be the carb diaphram (not very expensive if you replace yourself), when they get old they don't perform like they should. Could be the filter in the gas tank is bad, plugged. Also might be just an easy adjustment on the carb Low, and High speed screws. The choke has three positions, full choke, partial choke, and no choke, which means run position.

Trimmer won't stay running


Most likely needs the carb rebuilt.

First check the prime bulb and fuel lines for cracks. Check the spark arrestor for carbon buildup.

Another problem could be a stuck piston ring, but try rebuilding the carb first as it is usually the source of the problem.

Correct gas to oil ratio for Homelite Mighty String Trimmer Model


most trimmers are 50:1. or 40:1. i would use synthetic 2 cycle oil and use the 50:1 ratio. i know guys with trimmers that require 50:1, and they use synthetic at 80:1 with no problems for years. they say the engine runs cleaner. i am a part-time lawn care operator.

St185 Homelite string trimmer starts then dies


I resolved my problem by taking apart the carborator and cleaning it. There were clogged passaged that had stuff come out of them when I used airisol carb cleaner to blow them out. I only had to make one gasket the carb mount gasket which is pretty basic only 5 holes.
It ran for the next 3 hours, ran fantastic!!!!!!
